This week has been so busy! Tuesday we had this meeting from 9-2, then Wednesday we had interviews with our mission president from 9-2 as a zone and my companion and I had to stay the whole time. Thursday we had zone training meeting with the first half of our zone then Friday with the other half (we have a lot of visitor center sisters and there schedules are different). Saturday it was a better day and then Sunday is always so much fun! Our ward is doing pretty good getting investigators at church. We all have a competition going but it helps us work harder. Our Zone is way good too, they all just love being missionaries and fulfilling their purpose. Got to love Santa Monica! Well we also went of 3 exchanges this week with some other elders and it's so much fun. There's this Elder that comes from Burma (by China) and he just loves the Spanish culture. At the end of the exchange he said "I think I want to marry a Mexican girl now" I just laughed. The mission is good!
Love and miss you all!
Our ward mission leader said something that I really liked. He came with us to a lesson with a family we are teaching that they feel as the get closer to God, they go through trials, then he said, "there's a story in the Book of Mormon of these people called the Jaredites and they were commanded to cross the waters to come to the Americas, at first they were scared because of all the winds and waves they had to go through but they trusted in the Lord and it was BECAUSE of those very winds and waves that caused them to get to where God needed them to go" loved it
